Enjoyed a lovely evening here last Friday with my daughter. Food superb, steak cooked to perfection. Very nice atmosphere, food very reasonably priced, only criticism soft drinks very overpriced £2.50 for a very small coke which was mostly ice.

An over priced, less than average Sunday lunch. The pork tasted ok but the roast potatoes were inedible, as if they had been cooked yesterday and re-heated. Meal was tepid. Service was average. Whole place needs face lift, decor is tired and out of date.More

This restaurant is a good find - the food was superb (especially the lamb steak) and the dining room beautifully decorated (something a bit different from the norm!). Would definitely go back if in the area again.

Description
Our 2013 transformation remains loyal to Gee’s traditions of providing quality food & service in the most beautiful restaurant in Oxford. Whether flooded with mid-morning sunlight or under Oxford’s evening sky, Gee’s is the place to enjoy exceptional food in unique surroundings. The tables on the outdoor terrace are surrounded by the dense foliage of topiary & potted plants – & if you like the plants, some are available for sale. The new interior is filled with trees, new furniture, soft colours & lighting.Of course the important aspect of the new Gee’s is the cooking. A brand new kitchen incorporates a wood fired oven & a charcoal grill; food acknowledges the continued interest in the origin of ingredients, seasonality & the variety & abundance of local Oxfordshire produce.Gee’s remains the place in Oxford to enjoy a fabulous meal. There are dishes for sharing & dishes in two sizes to suit different appetites & times of the day. Expect great food to suit every occasion, served by knowledgeable & friendly waiters, in this beautiful, iconic glasshouse in North Oxford.
